A second public meeting about extending the Green Line to Mystic Valley Parkway is set for:

Wednesday, March 30, 6:30-9:00 p.m., 51 Winthrop Street, Medford.

 The meeting hosted by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and funded by MassDOT will examine the effects of a potential Mystic Valley Parkway station on the planned Green Line Extension to Somerville and Medford.

MAPC is the regional planning agency for Metropolitan Boston and is leading the community visioning process to look at how a potential future station at Mystic Valley Parkway could foster transit-oriented development in the area and minimize negative impacts for surrounding communities.

This second meeting follows an initial public meeting on February 16 and will focus on providing information and answering questions on the topics of traffic and parking, air quality, land acquisition, and managing neighborhood change.  A total of five public meetings are planned as part of the yearlong visioning process.
